The next generation
Baseball fans might recognize this pregame picture featuring Mike Trout (left) and Mark Trumbo of the LA Angels. After a breakout season, the multitalented Trout easily captured the 2012 AL Rookie of the Year award and many other honors. Trumbo also impressed with solid batting that year and joined Trout in the All-Star game.
"I could not resist photographing these two great young Angels players getting ready for a game against the A's in Oakland last year," photographer Brad Mangin told Crave.
"Sure there were many pros who laughed at me and gave me a bad time [for using Instagram], but that slowed down when people started seeing my pictures -- and especially in July of 2012 when Sports Illustrated published 18 of them (including this picture) across six pages in the magazine."
